A vision to behold

The look and feel of race-inspired performance is showcased throughout the Audi RS 3 Sedan. From the S sport seats in Fine Nappa leather to the widened front fenders and RS-design oval exhaust outlets, the dynamic lines put your adrenaline in motion.

Born on the track — built for the road.

The Audi magnetic ride or available RS fixed sport suspension help maximize handling dynamics. Audi magnetic ride uses a synthetic blend of oils that contain tiny magnetic particles, adjusting the firmness of the dampers within a few milliseconds by creating a magnetic field within the shock absorber.
